A small fishing port named after the whitewashed Byzantine church that stands on a rocky ledge above the little inlet. A 6.2 kilometre drive through olive groves and low-lying hills, south of the village of Aghios Nikolaos, Profitis Ilias has a view across the sea to the island of Kythera. Multi-coloured fishing caiques shelter from the winds at their moorings inside the breakwater. It is the last settlement before reaching Cape Maleas and the chapel of Aghia Irini. Close by are beaches such as Aspes, Limni, Rismari and Aghia Marina, the small seaside settlement of Korakas (2.5 km away to the north) and the Zombolos rock climbing area.
